This distance between us is too much for me to bear. Each day that passes leaves me wondering if I will ever return. I still remember the last time I saw your perfect face. The full moon was bringing in the rising tide and new foliage was in bloom. You smelled of fresh oil and sweet honeysuckle. Before I left for the ships you begged me to stay. Your eyes were full of divine love and the worry of a frightened child hid beneath your tears. That last embrace as you tightly wrapped your arms around my neck is the only thought that brings me peace anymore. Every night I see you in my dreams. You stand on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the sea as waves crash into the rocks below. Surrounding you is a shallow forest of blue roses. They consume all life like a beautiful plague. Your eyes are still consumed by that same childlike fear that they had the day I left. In these dreams, you're always weeping and calling out to the sea. What does it mean? I fear the worst. Hold on my dear, I'll be home soon.

Sincerely,
Your Love

Silk and floral oil subdued
Innocent glow of her eyes
Pedals fall drifting in winds
Carried to the corners of time

Less I know
The hope still bounds
My deepest feelings of you

Tied
and gagged
By memories
of your face

Hope
Endless
The sense of you drawing near
I faint
I call
For your lips my dear

The scene of you, Leaving that day
Haunts me, still in the grave
My heart beats slower it’s, freezing
In time for that, day

Hope
Endless
The sense of your face draws near
I faint
I fall
The roses are blue and fall

So it will be so clear
The cliffs side is drawing near

Hope
Withstand
The sense that you feel is real
I hold
Your heart
Endless my love I’m back

Too late we cannot be
In flesh but one day we can
I will wait here for, your, heart
The last breath will bring you in

Darkness falls on this unwelcoming port where lost men go to hide deep within the shadows. The stench of decayed earth lingers in the air, a stagnant wall of filth and greed seeping with the overwhelming scent of tobacco and cheap rum. On this cold and dismal night, a hungry and distorted soul docks in the harbor in hopes of filling his needs. Clothed in shadows, he quietly disappears deep into the night. A decrepit shack looms in the distance, wood rotting from years of sea blown wind and walls leaning at a crooked, impossible angle. Inside sits an old woman, steadily rocking back and forth in a cedar chair. Her eyes are hidden behind black hazed lenses and a bent frame. Wrapped in a rag sown blanket that should have been thrown out to the dogs, she sits staring endlessly at everything and nothing. Silhouettes begin to fade in and out as a figure approaches her rusted window. Eyes are upon her and she can sense a hollow beating heart is near. The door slowly creaks open as a man dressed in black enters. He pays no mind to the old women as he helps himself to whatever he pleases. His thoughts are interrupted when, in a whisper as faint as a breeze through autumn leaves, she asks, “What do you seek”? He turns and looms over her frail body, responding with no more than a grunt as he spits on the floor. A shimmer of gold from her left pocket catches his eye and he relieves her of what appears to be a valuable pocket watch. She offers no resistance, but instead her whispers intensify, “Eternal pain and drowning follow those who seek what you have obtained”. Dismissing her words of warning, he throws open the wind battered door and proceeds to leave. As he steps out of the shack and into the night, a raging tempest of water consumes his body, forcing out every breath remaining in his lungs. He drowns deep inside his own mind, unable to breath, surrounded by nothing but eternally lost souls. Spirits who have been trapped underwater pull him down into the nothingness below. Their eyes are a white cream of thick fog and their voices mourn out the cries of a thousand souls. “You are chosen”, they cry. “Join us, or face the consequences”.

Sweetest adored
Cold stench in the rain
King to my city, in danger
God stand, before me and men
Strangers in the dark
On a cold steel road
Become one of us
Or face, the consequences

Sounds of beating hearts, we've known
Send strength up above, sorrow
Defeat is in, defeat is out
Defeat is forming, a garden
The truth I've known, the truth unseen
Holy is the ground

Your passing of open seas, own land
The night is calm with sand
The moon is bright for the perfect time
Hoist your sails for land

Test your will to stand, to fight off
Eyes fade in a fog, drowning
You've been warned, you still must steal
Your sinking on your own
You've sprung a leak in heart
That ceases to now heal

Your passing of open seas, own land
The night is calm with sand
The moon is bright for the perfect time
Hoist your sails for land

Sweetest adored
Cold stench in the rain
King to my city, in danger
God stand, before me and men
Strangers in the dark
On a cold steel road
Become one of us
Or face, the consequences

You're passing of, open, seas own land
You're passing of, open, SEAS own land
The night is calm, the night is calm and full of sand
The moon is bright for the perfect time
Hoist your sail, hoist your sails for land

Story goes here.

Dreams have come to far
Melting over land
Leading the sun to rise
Open the Lighted gate
Dreaming is hard to do
Eyes colored and new
Skin from the dust of saplings
Assembled together a starling
It's time for my love to be thrown in the wind
Faced with the lasting embrace of my friend
Why did you do? I'm damaged
Caught in the shackles of missing a kiss within

Shooting for the top but I couldn't reach new heights
Reflection alone is the answer to the why
Discarded behind like an old dresser in a fire
Now I know I deserve this back of scars
Took my own knife to divide
Hideous limbs from my side
Life almost came as I tried
Stopped me from ending that night

Eloquently I pretend
Love and luscious listen in
What if I had known, what if I had known
The deepest part of me was you
Heart is yours eternal youth
What if I had known, what if I had known

No longer to the earth my wings begin to grow
Bitten by frost but stronger than before
The storm is calm I'm swimming in its veins
Beneath me I'm taken crystals cleanse my face
Sore to the moon I have gone
So long not knowing what's lost
The brightest reflection the coast
Sings to me melodies untold

Eloquently I pretend
Love and luscious listen in
What if I had known, what if I had known
The deepest part of me was you
Heart is yours eternal youth
What if I had known, what if I had known
Freedom did come
Blissful delight
Sensing a new love of my life
As I have gone straight up above
Seeking the earth is now where I fall

What's that I hear beyond this cold hill
The glow of her hair is sinking below
Take my old hands before you're too far
Please don't let go, try

Easy mister I was sad
In this moment I am recap
This blissful fall is where I stand
Leave me resting in the sand
